Myathropa florea

The thorax of M.florea has a characteristic dark marking that resembles the 'Batman' symbol. This is nicely visible in the photo. Sometimes the marks are less well defined.

Thanks Dave. This makes it

Thanks Dave.
This makes it easier for me to identify future hovers.
It's sometimes so difficult to get the right angle to identify them before to go flying about.
